Cyprus Country Information
Akrotiri is known as the "Western Sovereign Base Area" (WSBA) and incorporates the Akrotiri village district (including Limassol Salt Lake), and parts of 11 other village districts.
Within the base area are two main military bases:
Additionally, in the treaty which established the base areas, Britain undertook not to develop the base areas except for military purposes, not to create customs posts with the rest of Cyprus, and not to set up or permit the establishment of industrial or commercial enterprises except insofar as those are connected with the military. As a result, the main economic activities within the base areas are connected to the military, or agriculture.
Today, there are approximately 7,500 British military personnel based in the Akrotiri Sovreign Base area, as well as approximately 17,000 Cypriots.
